    I have been working at Labatt Food Service full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is constantly reinvesting their resources back into the company across its entire territory. Labatt is a company that is continually growing and bettering itself with each passing year. Since starting with Labatt 3 years ago, they have put millions of dollars into a brand new state of the art processing facility and updated multiple warehouses as well as create an on site clinic for its San Antonio office. Also, how many people can say that they work for a debt free company that is family owned and not publicly traded?

    Cons

    I do a great deal of traveling across multiple counties and am not given a company car or mileage; only a gas card that I pay the taxes on. I feel like I deserve a car allowance or a better plan for my travel that could potentially include a company car or mileage plan.

    Advice to Management

    Do not get complacent or assume that all employees are doing well. You should continually be making sure that subordinates are happy in their work and environments.

    Software Developer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Labatt Food Service in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for a Software Developer position using my university job board. I received a phone call from the Corporate Hiring Coordinator (CRC) inviting me to a Skype interview with one of the company's software developers. The interview went great. The software developer was very friendly, knowledgeable, and spoke about the work they do with great enthusiasm and a soothing accent. We went over basic technical questions about my previous role and OOP principles. After the Skype interview, the software developer had me interview with one of the company's executives who was also passionate about the company. The executive was a fast-talker and I could tell they were passionate about their company, but they sometimes cursed during the interviewed. I was taken aback. A week later, I received a phone call from the CRC informing me they wanted to interview me for a different position, Data Analyst, which they thought I would be a great fit for because of my data science and machine learning skills. I then interviewed with one of their VPs and this was by far one of the most awkward interview experiences I have ever had. The VP seemed disinterested, had their eyes focused on my resume the entire time and basically asked me to recite everything on my resume. They never looked up into the camera, not a single time, and it felt like they were interviewing my resume. So basically, after 3 interviews with 4 different people, I never heard back from any one of them. Not even a simple courteousy e-mail saying, "We are sorry, we don't think you would be a right fit for our company / we found someone more interesting or qualified / the position has been filled." It's like that moment when you both swipe right on Tinder, exchange several messages, and the day you both finally decide to meet for a real date, you never hear from your prospect date ever again. I never thought I would experience ghosting in a professional interview setting, but here we go. This is my story.
